The Fermentarium

    About this school

    The Fermentarium began its adventure in fermentation in 2014 at the Blackhorse Workshop, Walthamstow, London. At first the emphasis was on baking sourdough bread and pizza-making in a cob oven in the yard as well as sourdough bread-making classes.

    In 2014 Simon and David wanted to share their experience and knowledge of fermenting and began to run lactic fermentation classes and then were joined by Anna in March 2016 and added further courses including Soft fermented drinks and dairy ferments.

    In November 2016 the Blackhorse Workshop redeveloped the area occupied by the kitchen so now courses are run down the road at Gnome House, although a permanent home is being sought.
